I also had this error after applying Update 2 to ESXi 5.0, Have revoked the licenses and will see if the backups run ok tonight.

+1 Experienced the same here after applying 5.0 U2. Revoking via Help-> License, then re-running worked.

Had the same issue as well with 5.0 U2 via VUM. But only on one host, not sure what level it was before the update, sorry...

Had the same issue after applying the latest patches including U2 for our 5.0 environment. Revoking licenses seemed to do the trick. Looks like the jobs are running again.

Did the trick here too. After revoking licenses backups started working again.

Just wanted to add my 2 cents. This issue is real, and it happen to me with vsphere 5.0.0 update 2 was applied. The recommended revoke solution does resolve the issue.

[MERGED] KB1063 - ESX Host with bios uuid ... was not found

Veeam Logoby stuartmacgreen » Thu Apr 04, 2013 2:14 pm

Attempted to perform a restore of VM Hard Disks. At point to select datastore [Change] get a dialog.

Esx host with bios uuid ....not found.

Background
Recently we upgraded our vsphere from 5.0 to 5.1 (vcenter server and esxi hosts) one of the hosts had to be rebuilt however - but the others an upgrade performed.

We have performed restores since the upgrades.

We had initial problems with Veeam licenses after the upgrades but that was resolved by revoking the licenses. This was related to the hosts that time. They still were in Veeam as 5.0 hosts.

Anyway,
I found the KB1063 article, performed revoke of all Veeam licenses. Even restarted all Veeam services and the Veeam SQL Express service. Also migrated the VM I am attempting the restore with. The same message only except a different uuid, possibly because of the migrate.

I have checked my Backup Infrastructure and I see all my ESXi hosts (detail summary shows 5.10 builds) and have rescanned the vcenter server.

Still same message.
My request via this forum post however, is how do I issue the SQL statement in the KB1063 article when I dont have SQL Studio Manager installed. (I am not a DBA of any level - really). Should I just install it?

Hello,

Have you looked in to this topic?

Regarding the KB1063, there are three workarounds mentioned, as you tried to revoke licenses and there is no SQL Studio on your side, did you try to recreate jobs?

Cheers!

Yes, there is even a download link to SQL Server Management Studio Express given at the bottom of the article especially for that case.

[MERGED] Upgrading ESXi 5.0 U1 to 5.1 with VBR 6.5

Veeam Logoby Frosty » Mon Apr 08, 2013 5:11 am

I upgraded my VBR 6.0 to 6.5 a month or so ago and it has all been smooth sailing.
I'm now ready to consider upgrading vCenter/ESXi 5.0 U1 to 5.1,
so am just wondering whether there is anything special I need to know before starting?
e.g. will I need to re-create backup jobs? (we don't do any replication stuff, just backups)
e.g. will VBR need any special treatment to recognise the upgraded vCenter?

Re: Upgrading ESXi 5.0 U1 to 5.1 with VBR 6.5

Veeam Logoby v.Eremin » Mon Apr 08, 2013 7:23 am

Please be aware that upgrade process will set a different UUID to your ESXi server. Since Veeam uses the UUID to distinguish objects, your jobs are likely to fail with the following error:

Host with uuid was not found

However, the fix is actually quite simple, and should be done right after the upgrade and before the next backup to avoid a failure. Simply revoke the Veeam licenses assigned to the hosts.

Go to Menu -> Help -> Licence -> Licensed host -> Select the server that have been upgraded to 5.1 -> Revoke.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Additionally, don’t forget to upgrade vCenter before the hosts. Otherwise, you’ll face vCenter inability to see/administer properly ESXi hosts with newer version.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Revoked licenses - still same message.
Issued the delete sql statement and the dbo HostsByJob table is now empty - same message. Stopped all Veeam services - same message.

- remaining option to recreate all my jobs! REALLY!

Note: I am trying to perform a RESTORE.
Going to get in touch with support.
